How to use the Day Planner plugin?

I have recently picked up the amazing Day Planner plug in and I love it. Although I am still not 100% sure how to use it. Is there any formal documentation or any user that could give me tips? For example:

  • I don’t get how time tracking works
  • How to create new Sections
  • What are section breaks (are they time breaks or dividers?)

Thanks in advanced!

Have you looked at the description of the plugin itself? It’s in the GitHub repo and also on its community plugin page.

So I have been having issues while working with the command mode for this plugin. In the documentation it says that you can place the day planner in any note while in command mode and the section of the “Day Planner” will be tracked and shown in the timeline for that note. However this has not worked for me.

I created a brand new vault without any plugins apart from the core setup and the day planner plugin. Yet the command mode does not work. The file mode works as expected. I am not sure what is the right procedure to get command mode working. @J_L prolly can throw some light on it.

I have been loving day planner and I think I have it basically figured out EXCEPT I don’t understand where the template for the page is stored?

Currently when I use activate the day planner in my daily note I get this at the top of the page but I want to edit that and add my own.

I’ve looked into the hidden .obsidian folder in the vault and under plugins but I don’t see the template so I’m deleting the above lines and have a shortcut tied to Alfred snipped. But I would like to know if I can edit the template if that is possible?


@cwdaniels I found it on line 42 in the main.js in [vault]/.obsidian/plugins/obsidian-day-planner. I am not sure what would be gained by hacking this file though. What would be really helpful is if you could call a template from the template folder. Having to drill down to make a change or reenstate values after each update isn’t good practice is it? Add also change the format for the file names. But I am being greedy . . . .

I just have a template in my templater file, doesn’t that solve the problem?

My Day Planner plugin has gone haywire, and I can’t seem to stop it, or uninstall it. I moved my main vault to Obsidian for use with mobile, and it keeps generating new Day Planner pages in a folder in the old location. I’ve turned it off, deleted it, deleted the .obsidian file, and still it generates copies like the sorcerer’s apprentice everytime I delete the notes it generates. Do I need to delete Obsidian program and re-download?
